White Market Podcast is an award-winning* show about free music and free culture by Rute Correia. While the show is mainly focused on Creative Commons-licensed music, since it is also naturally intertwined with other movements and ideologies such as open source and open access, it often features these and similar forms of activism related to digital rights and freedoms.
Our promise to raise free culture awareness is also stated on our collection on Free Music Archive. White Market Podcast has been a curator since 2012.
White Market Podcast is the English-spoken successor or Programa Marca Branca. Between 2008 and 2013, Programa Marca Branca was the only regular Portuguese radio show exclusively dedicated to netaudio and free culture, with weekly podcasts and features about this digital universe. The show was broadcast on six different radio stations in Portugal and Spain. The project had to go on hold at the end of 2013, restarting as White Market Podcast about a year later. The show also aired on two British radio stations in 2016.
